Tsarnaev’s College Friends Face Federal Charges in Boston Marathon Bombing

Moakley Federal Courthouse

 

In the days following the Boston Marathon bombings April 15, accused suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev texted with a college friend thrusting him and two others into the precarious situation of helping the man who may have attacked the city.

Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, and Robel Phillipos, 20, looked every bit as young in their initial federal court appearance Wednesday afternoon as their actions in the days following the bombing would indicate, according to the federal criminal complaint against them.

Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov each face one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, and Phillipos faces a charge of making false statements in a terrorism investigation. Each voluntarily denied bail and were detained following their appearance before Judge Marianne B. Bowler at John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse in Boston.

Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, nationals of Kazakhstan who were in immigration court Wednesday morning because of expired student visas, face a maximum penalty of five years in prison with three years supervised release and a fine of $ 250,000. Phillipos faces a maximum penalty of an eight-year prison term with three years supervised release and a fine of $ 250,000. All three said they would be able to afford lawyers. read more

Friends of a North End woman severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings last week are hoping to raise $ 750,000 to help her with hospital costs and other needs during her recovery.

According to a post on GoFundMe.com, North End resident Roseann Sdoia had attended the Red Sox game at Fenway Park on Monday, April 15 and had walked over to the finish line at Copley Square to watch the rest of the marathon when she was injured by the explosions.

“Roseann suffered serious injuries as a result of the explosions and has lost a leg above the knee,” wrote Christine Rousseau Hart, who attended high school and college with Sdoia.

Hart posted a photo on the GoFundMe.com site that shows Sdoia watching the race in front of the restaurant Forum, standing three people away from eight-year-old Martin Richard of Dorchester, who was one of three people killed in the bombings.

Sdoia reportedly has undergone several surgeries for her injuries. read more
